GATLINBURG (AP) - The Great Smoky Mountains National Park will hold its 38th annual Festival of Christmas Past celebration on Saturday.

Also, a Christmas Memories Walk will teach visitors about the spirit of the season in the Smokies from the 1880s to the 1930s.

The event takes place from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Sugarlands Visitor Center.
